The MDB Safety Kit as provided by the CPSC can be attached to the crib to prevent the drop side from moving up and down. Installing a MDB Safety Kit will make any crib in functioning condition into a CPSC approved safe sleep space for baby.
Things to Check Before Installing Your Safety Kit
Properly Working Crib
If your crib is functioning properly, you can continue to use the product. The installation of the MDB Safety Kit will create a static-side crib.
Poorly Maintained Crib
Improper use, abuse over time, or inaccurate assembly of the drop-side crib has caused problems related to hardware breakage and failure. Installation of a MDB Safety Kit will prevent movement of the side railing, creating a static-side crib.
If your crib is already damaged, a safety kit is not the solution. Parents should find an alternative safe sleep environment for their baby immediately until a replacement crib is purchased.
